Cover Characteristics: Book Covers featuring Big Ben

It was a lot easier to find covers with Big Ben on them than you would think it would be, even when sticking mostly to sci-fi and fantasy. I mean, I knew this would be a topic at some point, so I started bookmarking any covers I stumbled on with Big Ben, so that made it easy when it came time to make the post, but still, there are more out there than I would've thought! Anyway, I've never been to...

Cover Characteristics: Best Book Covers from Books I Read in 2016

So you know how I usually choose ten covers/series for my Cover Characteristic posts? Well... Hahahahahahahahaha---Not happening this time. I don't know what happened this year, if it was just coincidence or if I started judging books more by their covers and letting myself be drawn in by all the pretty ones, but I read SO MANY books with gorgeous covers this year, and I want to share them all....

Cover Characteristics: Book Covers featuring Snow

Snow just seems like the perfect topic for December, yes? Plus it turns out it makes for some very pretty and magical covers. Plus some of my favorite covers have snow on them. Also, I don't get snow where I live, so snowy covers have this almost fantastical quality to me (whether the books are fantasy or not) and really transport me in a way that other covers don't, so I like them. So basically,...
